Eric Holder Hospitalized

Posted on | February 27, 2014 | 43 Comments

Don’t know what the diagnosis or prognosis is:

Attorney General Eric Holder was taken to an area hospital Thursday after reporting faintness and shortness of breath.
Justice Department spokesman Brian Fallon said Holder, 63, began experiencing the symptoms during a regular senior staff meeting at the department.
“As a precaution, the attorney general was taken to MedStar Washington Hospital Center to undergo further evaluation,” Fallon said. “He is currently resting comfortably and in good condition. He is alert and conversing with his doctors.”

Most likely a heart attack, but we’ll have to wait and see.

    He had an attack of conscience.

    But he’ll get over it.

    Perhaps it’s due to stress and overwork. Or an existing condition aggravated from stress and overwork.

    In either case, immediate retirement is a sound idea.

    I’d never wish ill on the evil bastard, but if you spend your life advocating and breaking the law for a thoroughly evil and failed ideology, something is going to wear out eventually. He and the entirety of the Obamunist cult are racing the clock, trying to destroy the country before they are deposed in two years.

    Satan balked at renewing his 7-year contract.

    Good thing he signed up for Obamacare.

    He accidentally slipped up and told the truth.

    Systems can’t handle a shock like that, all at once.

    In lieu of flowers: Encouragement out to Mr. Holder’s family today. Your husband and father may be an unindicted felon, but everyone needs an old man.

    In the interests of bipartisanship and comity, I think that we should all hope that Mr Holder recovers soon, and sees the need to spend more time with his family.

    Sounds like she went to Duke for a reason. The reason being the party atmosphere where she could meet rich boys and have a good time. Look at all her other college applications, USC, Pepperdine, etc. Perhaps a serious mental illness is exhibiting itself. Cognative dissonance is generally a precursor to a break down. It is clear she really wanted to be outed and humiliated for doing a job she says is not humilitating.

    Most likely flu, or other viral infection.

    If it is cardiac it is more likely atrial fibrillation than an occlusion.

    Just playing the odds…

    Either way the jackass POTUS will just install another immoral lackey.

    Was he supposed to testify somewhere?

    Indeed. Personally I want him to live and be healthy so we can impeach him properly.

    Actually, nothing to mess around with. I had it a year and a half ago. They had to stop my heart and restart it, after knocking me out, of course.

    I was thinking of the one she had a virus, fell, got a concussion and was hospitalized after they discovered a blood clot…so didn’t have to testify before congress.

    Oh Lord, please ensure a clear blast radius around Holder before affording him what he merits.

    Perhaps he had some kind of accident…like a head on collision with the truth. A crook like Holder would probably find that quite traumatic.

    Did the attack come on Fast and Furious for Mr. Holder?

    I suspect Holder is establishing the ‘sick’ narrative in case Republicans retake the Senate. If they do, he will resign for ‘health reasons’ right after November, before they can impeach him. He’s hoping this will give him some emotional cover and sympathy from the MSM. If they don’t retake the Senate, he will ‘miraculously recover’ a la Hillary.

    If Holder resigns, Obama won’t be able to nominate another partisan. In that case, he’ll continue indefinitely with the acting deputy AG. I don’t know who that is, but if they serve under Holder they must be just as bad.

    *edit* P.S.: I’m not a practicing Christian, and I hope he dies. Few people deserve it more.

    In light of Holder’s support for gay marriage, maybe the ‘she’ part too.
